What’s more badass than Dwarves? Aliens Dwarves! Ghost Ship Games’ newest title, Deep Rock Galactic, put players in the skin of groups of Dwarves cooperating to eliminate hordes of alien monsters and mine ores in procedurally-generated caves. While that sounds fun—and it is!—, new players might get a bit lost. This guide is here to help you!

Beginner’s Guide – Deep Rock Galactic

Once players log into Deep Rock Galactic for the first time, they’ll have the option to complete a tutorial. You may refuse and come back to it any time, but if you’re new to the game and the genre, why not take a few minutes to understand the basics of gameplay?

After the tutorial, you’ll visit the Space Rig, the HUB area where you can purchase vanity and equipment upgrades, begin and abort assignments, and have a drink at the Abyss Bar.

New players must complete Conquer Hoxxes IV, a 10-mission-long assignment, which will give you your first Crafting Resources and Credits.

Once you complete this introduction, you’ll be free to explore the various planetary regions of Hoxxes IV. And that’s when the real fun begins!

Mining and (not) Dying

In the Mission Terminal, you can select planetary region, mission type, and game mode. Once you’re belted up, you will be transported to your chosen cave system to get the job done!

The caves in Deep Rock Galactic are tricky, both because of their procedurally-generated nature and the many creatures that will attack you, sometimes in swarms.

You may be tempted to use flares all the time, but don’t forget that they’re limited! They do refill over time, but if you overuse them, you’ll have to wait a few moments before you have more. So, maybe exploring in low light might be a better long-term solution in some cases.

Do remember about your map, which allows players to see a small recreation of the area around them. That’s useful for checking areas for any Ore that might’ve escaped you and for devising escape routes when you have no time (or HP) to fight.

You can also create waypoints with your Laser Pointer to remind you of locations. In addition, this device can ping other players and identify ores and enemies.

While you’re out there mining your way through the caves in search of riches, you’ll have a secondary objective that you can try to complete before the time’s up. Those reward Credits and XP, so it’s worth the trouble!

Co-Op is one of Deep Rock Galactic’s greatest elements, and if you can, gather a group of friends with microphones to make sure the mission will go as smoothly—and as fun—as possible.

The game has four Classes: Driller (crowd control and create quick entrances and staircases), Engineer (turrets and Platform Gun to give the team higher grounds to stand on), Gunner (powered minigun for efficient defence and Zipline Gun), and Scout (Grappling Hook, Flare Gun, and a Field Generator that slows enemies down and increases damage taken).

It’s important that each team member choose a Class, understand its perks, and how it can be used in tandem with other Classes to compose badass strategies!

Be careful with one thing, though: there is friendly fire, so be careful when things get chaotic! Speaking of damage, there’s also fall damage.

Last but not least, don’t forget to upgrade! The aliens will get nastier and more numerous and the caverns longer, so you’ll want to keep up with the growing heat.

Hopefully, this guide was helpful! Good luck with your exploration!

Released on November 17, 2022, Frozen Flame is a game that blends Survival Action and RPG. Fans of both genres will already expect levelling up, various biomes and enemies, collectables, and crafting! While part of the genre’s structure, crafting can be difficult if you don’t know how to obtain the necessary resources. Are you having a similar headache? Fret not! Read this guide for some tips and tricks to help you!

INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast – Frozen Flame

Bones and fabric are two important crafting resources in Frozen Flame. And what if I tell you there’s a way to get as many of those resources as you can get? And that, in the meanwhile, you can also get loads of XP?

Sounds too good to be true? Well, maybe… but you’ll see that it works!

Fabric Farm

There are two farming locations.

The first and most efficient (and the one that will also give you Masks if you want to add more to your collection) is the Cradle of Keepers, the starting area of the game, where you can farm fabric.

Before leaving your house, equip some weapons to help you: the bone bow and bone staff are good options.

From the southwest portion of the island, you’ll want to fly northwest and find a cave. You can check out the exact location and the cave’s appearance in the screenshots below:

Inside this cave, you’ll find a huge encampment of humanoids as well as the purple mists that spawn Mobs.

The strategy here is to trigger the mob spawn then walk backwards and start killing them with your bow.

However, you don’t want to kill all the enemies! Keep one or two alive, walk further backward and wait until the mist reappears.

This is the sign that a new mob wave is ready to respawn. Go inside the encampment and retreat again, repeating the process of shooting and respawning them until you’re satisfied with the number of corpses littering the cavern’s floor.

Then, kill every enemy and remain inside the encampment. Loot all the corpses, and you’ll be impressed with how much fabric you earn with this simple strategy!

Bones + Fabric Farming

Broken Valley is the second farming spot and the place you go if you need bones and fabric.

First, fast-travel to the first quick-travel spot in the Broken Valley, where you completed the quests for Hornhead. And what you’ll do is travel to a hidden cave underneath the island.

Inside this cave, you’ll find three mobs: a shield bearer and two warlocks. Your goal here is to ignore the shield bearer and kill the two warlocks (be careful with their fire spells!).

Once you kill them, leave the cave, wait a couple of seconds for their mist to respawn, and go back inside, repeating the process.

After a few times, you can go in and quickly loot the fallen enemies (always ignoring the shield bearer) and keep repeating this process for as long as you want (or for as long as your items have durability).

While slower than the Cradle of Keepers cave, this will give you all the bones and fabric you’ll need in the game. So, good farming! Thanks to 04AM for the tricks!
